About Us

WHO WE ARE

We are the Human Resource Management Office, the primary agency of the City Government of Davao responsible for the management of personnel services including recruitment, compensation, benefits administration, employee relations, and capacity building programs.

We are a modern human resource management organization geared towards equipping our employees with the skills of the future, as well as improving our tools, strategies, and systems for greater efficiency as we actively perform our duties and functions. We are constantly working together with other agencies and organizations to provide a wide range of quality integrated human resource programs and services to the City Government’s working population.

DID YOU KNOW?

In July 2019, the City Government of Davao was accorded the Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) Bronze Award by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for elevating the standards of Human Resource Management (HRM) and public service.

The Human Resource Management Office of Davao has received the PRIME-HRM Level II Accreditation which means that we have reached the benchmark set by CSC for developing our own competencies, system, and practices towards HR excellence.

PRIME-HRM evaluates HR management performance in four aspects namely: Recruitment, Selection, and Placement; Learning and Development; Performance Management; and Rewards and Recognition.

As a wonderful consequence, the City Government of Davao and the Human Resource Management Office are now in the works to pursue Level III accreditation and we will not stop until we have reached that goal.

OUR VISION

OUR MISSION

We commit to translate our vision into reality through innovative HR strategies and responsive and sustained personnel mechanisms in order to develop a workforce that will reach its full potential, thereby becoming globally competitive and recognized human capital achieving the development agenda of the City Government of Davao
